December 10, 2011 - Suzy Bogguss regards her first meeting with Chet Atkins as a “life-changing moment.” Atkins championed encouraged her career early on, describing her as “one of the best” in the liner notes to her debut album. In 1994, they recorded their duet album, Simpatico. Other collaborations followed, as did a lasting friendship. In this program, Bogguss shares memories of Atkins and songs from their work together, as well as tunes from her latest release, American Folk Songbook. She also spreads some holiday cheer.
